Berrington Pool - OSPREY!

I was just about to call it a day - it was 4.21 precisely (I know because that's the first shot I took of a large raptor heading my way) By the time I'd got the camera settings out of Dragonfly mode - and realised it was an OSPREY - I'd missed the very brief key moment - he was over my head and about to dive!

He dived immediately but I couldn't lock focus on the water from where I was standing due to vegetation, emerged fishless and then flew over towards the 'Top Pool'. I wasn't impressed by witnessing one of the best rear views I've had of an Osprey....

He hovered, dived (out of view) into the Top Pool and that was the last I saw of him....
